Kimono cat

To become a Kimono beauty,
you need to have a certain figure.
Pettit, narrow & slant shoulder,
no bumps & curves yet not so skinny.
These days, even Japanese girls
rarely have this kind of figure.
Cats might be the only creature fit
into this description.

Winter garden

It's July already.
Our green apples make
lovely treat for the birds.

Silver eyes are busy munching
juicy apples.
Yum, yum.

We are fortunate to have 
four apple trees in our garden
so there's enough for all of us to enjoy
during the winter.

Wet & cold

It's been too wet to go out and about.

So a small sewing project has began.

Up-cycled wrapping papers can be

reborn as a good sewing pattern.

And my little felt pin cushion is very

kawaii & handy, isn't it?

Waiting for the sunshine

It's winter here.
And our land is covered with
a long rainy cloud.
Neighbour's beautiful lawn has
turned into a paddle.
Our cats seemed to got tired of
staying at home all day long and
they decided to go out.
I'm sure they'll be coming back like
kids after swimming lessons.

End of Autumn

Dahlia is one of my favorite  care free flowers.
You just plant its tuberous root once and it multiples year after year.
Most of the dahlias in our garden have finished their season already.
This tree dahlia is the last dahlia to bloom in Autumn and
finishes with the first frost.
We had a hail and sleety Winter-like weather today.
May is nearly over now.

Wish has come true

Several years ago, I found a lovely house with lots of
pretty toadstools in its garden while I was walking
around our neighborhood.
And before the following autumn, that house was sold
and its garden was fully re-landscaped.
There is no pretty toadstools in that garden any more.
But they are here in my driveway.
How they came about is mystery yet their pollen could
travel with cats and dogs.

Happy New Year

A brand new day.
A brand new year.
Hope it's going to be a better year than last one.
And find happiness in everyday life.
Be thankful to others and yourself.
